The West Australian Government through Tourism WA continues to make a significant contribution to Western Australia through event tourism each year. Tourism WA areas of expertise include event management, television broadcast, marketing, research, media, government relations and venue identification.
Tourism WA achieves its goals by implementing a number of strategies which include:
The Western Australian community is proud of its record for staging and hosting major events. Western Australia has effectively hosted blockbuster events such as the Margaret River Pro Surfing, Telstra Rally Australia, Red Bull Air Race, A Day in Pompeii Exhibition, 5 Oceans Yacht Race, Australasian Safari, Ironman Western Australia Triathlon, ISAF Sailing World Championships, the V8 Supercars and the Hyundai Hopman Cup Tennis. Tourism WA sets world benchmarks in organisation and professionalism. Post-event research consistently reports high satisfaction amongst stakeholders with Eventscorp's organisation, management and support before, during and after an event.
The Department of Regional Development manages more than 2.5million square kilometres of State land and administers the $6.1billion Royalties for Regions program that is developing towns and communities in regional Western Australia.
VenuesWest is Western Australia’s provider of premier sports, recreation and entertainment venues and its growing portfolio includes the new and world class Perth Arena and the redeveloped state of the art nib Stadium. These are in addition to HBF Stadium, HBF Arena Joondalup, WA Athletics Stadium, WA Basketball Centre, Midvale Speeddome, Perth Motorplex, Champion Lakes Regatta Centre and the WA Rugby Centre, with the State Netball Centre and the Western Australian Institute of Sports High Performance Service Centre under construction shortly.
